An organisation's anniversary is a milestone worthy of a celebration, and when the organisation turns 100, that celebration should be significant. Decorate your party venue to reflect this milestone occasion. Everything from centrepieces to wall art and favours can celebrate the 100-year mark for your organisation. Don't hesitate to include plenty of century-themed decorations; your organisation has earned an elaborate party.

Centrepieces can bring the 100th anniversary theme to each table at your organisation's event. If you want a traditional centrepiece with a centennial twist, choose floral bouquets to match your colour scheme. Paint wooden numbers, "1," "0" and "0," to match, attach them to dowel rods and place them in the bouquet. Alternately, reflect on your organisation's 100 years of achievement by creating photo collages. Find photos of employees and events over the organisation's 100-year history, and place them in sterling silver collage frames. Group the photos by decade on the table, and include a sheet of paper in one of the frames that identifies the decade, like the 1970s.


Look back on the past 100 years of your organisation's success and add some decor to your anniversary venue's walls as well. Print blown-up copies of old newspaper and magazine articles about your company on durable pieces of card stock. You can frame the articles or simply mount them to the wall in your venue. Guests will enjoy walking around, reading articles and reflecting on what the organisation has accomplished. You can add profiles of past organisation executives or employees as well to remember the individuals who have helped your organisation run for the last 100 years.


The cake can serve as more than just dessert; it can also add a decorative touch to your 100th anniversary party. If you choose to use a traditional sheet cake, ice the cake in colours that match your organisation's colours. Include a congratulatory sentiment on it, like "Here's to 100 more years of success." For a more modern look, choose a tiered cake. Each tier can feature one of the organisation's colours; have the bakery add words or symbols on each tier that reflect your company. For example, if your mission statement includes the words "honesty," "success" and "community," you can have one of these words added to each tier in fondant icing.
